‘Below Deck Med’: Does June Foster Still Have the Butterfly Ring From the Queen of Versailles?
Third stew June Foster from Below Deck Mediterranean shared an emotional moment with charter guest Jackie Siegel, from the documentary, The Queen of Versailles. Siegel gave Foster a special butterfly ring and fans wondered if she still has it today.
Siegel and Foster bonded when they shared their stories of loss. Siegel’s 18 year old daughter Victoria died in 2015 after overdosing on opioids. Foster shared that her father had also recently died. In a moment in Siegel’s cabin, Siegel gave Foster a beautiful butterfly ring. Siegel felt that when a butterfly rested on her thumb it was a kiss from her daughter.
Of course, Foster is overwhelmed and emotional as Siegel shares she now has goosebumps. The moment was filmed a few years ago, so does Foster still have the ring?
June Foster still has the ring and keeps it safe
Foster was in disbelief when Siegel gave her the ring. She recently shared she still has it and keeps it safe. “Oh yes, I have it stowed in a very safe space,” Foster replied to a fan’s question about it on an Instagram post.
The moment had significance as Foster said she received the call to be on Below Deck Med on the anniversary of her father’s passing. “What was interesting, and this is gonna sound so strange, but, they called me on the day of my papa’s death,” she told Showbiz Cheat Sheet. “I took it as a sign from him to go. I took it as a sign that ‘This is good for you.’”
“He died on September 13, 2016, and when loved ones die, you always know that day,” Foster adds. “So I remember thinking at the time, ‘Papa would want me to do that.’ He was so supportive. We would sit down and watch Below Deck together, so that was always my thing with him.”
Foster still works in yachting
She recently shared she was spending the summer season as a yachtie in Spain. Foster shot a video to show her mom the breathtaking landscape.
Foster has also been extremely busy since leaving the show. She launched the company, YachtInspired, designed to help captains and yacht owners enhance employee retention and satisfaction. She based the company on her experience working in the yachting industry. “Some were engaging, but others had established their permanent crew and you were always treated like the second hand,” she said.
Her book, ‘The Girl and the Golden Leaf’ was recently the inspiration for new legislation to provide better protection against human trafficking. “I am honored that the namesake ‘The American Golden Leaf Recovery & Protection Act’ was inspired by my novel The Girl and the Golden Leaf, a suspense story that touches upon poverty, faith and the horrors of human trafficking. The Act will strengthen and expand current anti-human trafficking efforts in our battle to save and protect the victims of human trafficking,” she shared on Instagram.
